  • Shoulder Turn Drill

    Written by Dan Frost on Friday, 31 July 2009

    Every golfer wants more distance off the tee with the big stick. But in an attempt to get fully loaded behind the ball for a big drive, many golfers will simply rotate their shoulders. By doing this and keeping the torso and lower body square to the ball, the position at the top becomes restricted often resulting in the player swaying...

  • How To Shake The Shanks By Butch Harmon

    Written by Butch Harmon on Thursday, 30 July 2009

    What is it about the shank that makes golfers run and hide? Two things: First, they don't know what causes it; second, where there's one shank there tends to be another (I'll explain why).

  • Improve Your Impact Position With Soren Hansen

  • Oliver Wilson Practice Drills

    Written by Oliver Wilson on Thursday, 09 July 2009

    Perfect Posture So often, amateurs have great posture at address, but then lose it during the swing. They might “stand up” and straighten the spine or hunch forward; either way, the clubhead is unlikely to come back to square. On the practice ground you will often see me with a tee in my mouth. I point this at the ball...

  • Dont Leave Your Body Behind with Mikko Ilonen

    Written by Mikko Ilonen on Friday, 05 June 2009

    The takeaway has to be one of the most important moves of all in the golf swing because if you get that wrong then you are fighting the rest of the way.

  • David Leadbetter's Full Swing Fundamentals

    Written by David Leadbetter on Thursday, 30 April 2009

    When I give a 30-minute corporate clinic, I'm usually speaking to hundreds of people of varying abilities.

  • Rehearse Your Shot
